I just heard Fort Worth mentioned on 'Wait Wait Don't Tell Me' (the NPR news show) in relation to the Amazon headquarters. Frisco came up first stating 'we will rearrange our town for you'. Then we came up as 'If you like Dallas you might also like Fort Worth...'
Can't link to the show segment, as it is currently airing.

Looks like there is plenty of emergency access to the site. There are several points on access on 7th as well as one on Arthur to Dakota off of White Settlement (in the back). The first fire trucks would probably be coming from Station 6 on University, just south of White Settlement (probably using the back route), or from downtown.
Agreed. Some cities are learning though; along with the minimum required parking maximum limits are in some zoning codes as well. Exceeding the limits in Fort Worth leads to some extra requirements in Urban Forestry.
Quite often that needed green space is also detention or retention ponds for mitigating the runoff from the developed impermeable surfaces.
A lot of homeowners don't carry it, especially when it is optional. Most mortgage lenders will require it if your property is drawn up in a flood map.
Youngalum, I think flood insurance is not entirely part of that same monster. Isn't it backed through the National Flood Insurance Program? If your carrier is dragging their feet and otherwise, that would probably hold up the NFIP claims though.
I wasn't too fond of that new law either. I think it was a really poor solution and/or reaction to some of the supposedly frivolous roofing lawsuits that came up recently. A whole lot of our representatives sure did jump on the insurance companies bandwagon. Too bad the not enough voters will remember come election day. Nothing new...
I think I've seen this before, but there were mountains in the background and skis on top of the cars. I might just be this perspective, but I'll be looking forward to more renderings and the construction.
